Amanda Seyfried will be playing a young woman in some kind of peril this weekend, as she stars in the Catherine Hardwicke-directed fairy tale revamp Red Riding Hood. She'll be at it again at some point next year in Now the sci-fi thriller also starring Justin Timberlake. And she'll be doing it one more time in the thriller Gone, as a young woman hunting down the kidnapper who attacked her years earlier and who has now targeted her sister. That film starts shooting in April, and a supporting cast has been added to get things moving forward.

According to Variety Emily Wickersham, Jennifer Carpenter and Wes Bentley have all been added to the cast; the article doesn't say who they'll be playing, but it seems a fair guess that Wickersham could play the kidnapped sister, and Bentley, having perfected the creepy guy roles over the years, would be a fair guess for the abductor. Though Carpenter is a regular on Dexter and Wickersham appeared in I Am Number Four, none of them are as famous as Seyfried, which suggests this will be a real starring vehicle for the actress. Summit will be distributing the film, which seems perfect for the kind of spring spot that Red Riding Hood is occupying this year.
